Claim Support For Hair Care Products - proDERM Introduces a New Method for The Detection of Heat Protection


Schenefeld/Hamburg, Germany - 04.10.2017

In September 2017 the institute proDERM has introduced a new claim support method at the HairS-symposium in Dresden, Germany. The method supports protective effects related to hair damage caused by blow-drying. The corresponding poster 'Heat protection - a sophisticated approach to assess protective efficacy against mild damage by blow-drying' is available for download on the company's website.

At least with the increased consumer acceptance of flatirons, products with a protective effect against heat damage are firmly established in the market for hair care products. Corresponding methods for claim support usually look at scenarios with very high temperatures of up to 200 ° C.

During the blow-drying of hair , a maximum temperature of up to 80 ° C is produced. The subsequent hair damage is different to the one caused by flatirons. Therefore a specific claim support method is required. proDERM has developed and validated such a method based on the combing force method. Product claims such as 'protects the hair from damage by hair blow-drying' can thus be specifically examined.
